Fascinating...simply fascinating!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

My family adopted a 5 yr. old tabby from the SPCA 2 months ago. The decision was made as a last resort when our neighborhood mice threatened to take over our home. We're quite thankful that "Cat" (M.J. Flyer) did a quick and effective job evicting our unwanted tenants. What I didn't expect was bonding with this animal! Having never owned a pet, I knew absolutely nothing about caring for a cat. But like most projects I become interested in, I found myself devouring everything I could find to properly care for our new family member.

The cat's adopted name is Flyer. My eldest daughter tagged him M.J. (Michael Jackson), hence, MJ Flyer. My wife and I simply refer to him as "Cat", but I personally refer to "Cat" as "Shadow" since he follows me throughout the house whenever I'm home. I can go on and on about "Cat" if you allow me to. My co-workers find it amusing that I pamper the pet so much (premium cat food?), and my wife warns me to stop "weirding out over the cat".

'nuff said.

Thanks for the forum.

Welcome to TCS!

You went looking for a "mouser", what you got was a family member. Congratulations!

If your cat is a mouser than it opens the cat up to tapeworms. Just let your vet know and he will give you drontal to take care of the problem

Thanks for the reply and the welcome. Yes, "Cat" is a constant companion. I only regret he didn't find us sooner.

As for being a mouser, he quickly worked himself out of a job...and earned a position into the family. We haven't seen or heard a mouse since day 3 of his joining the family. I'll remember the advise, though. Thanks a lot!
